The Challenge

• Planning at the client’s end is done at Excel Sheets by planners on day to day basis (Elimination of manual activities in planning) • Multisite planning required for more visibility of all companies with single company in Baan • Constraints based finite Material planning • Simulation Capability with what-if analysis is required on day to day basis for users to simulate some situations like rush orders & their Impact on existing plan • Quota Arrangement to distribute planned supply orders between different supply sources • SIC planning for material movement between warehouses • Sales Commitment to customer should be more realistic based on capacity • Relation between sales orders and planned supply was required to see the complete chain from Purchase to Sales for demands • Firm Allocations of Supply orders to demand time phased inventory planning dynamically based on upcoming demand

The Solution

nicheBees team addressed all the needs, pain points that were faced by the client in a professional and systematic fashion. nicheBees’s solution to the challenges faced by the client was implementing Infor SCM Planner with integration to the Baan IV ERP. The client achieved the material constraints based finite planning by implementing Infor SCM Planner with the help of nicheBees Technosolutions. Now the client can commit dates for delivery of finish goods to the customer. Users can now easily see the relation between supply Orders & demand. By mapping Distribution relationship as distribution Process we were able to remove additional activity of running Customization to generating replenishment orders. By using a feature of Sourcing Selection Method as “Balance Load” with defined ratio as weight in Infor SCM Planner, the client implemented the quota arrangement as desired. The client separated the three companies with routings defined with different work centers & Warehouses in the single Baan Company.
